Love Your Lake Toronto Day 1

Six Cleanups in the 6ix

Love Your Lake Toronto started with a bang, it was a record breaking day! We picked up 5,972 pieces of litter over six cleanups. We were joined by many wonderful volunteers who worked hard through the heat to get lots of work done. The parks we went to were so nice, but there was a lot of litter at every one we went to. A lot of small plastic pieces and pieces of foam all washed up on shore. We also found four syringes. There were more conversations than usual. Lots of people passing by were interested in what we were doing and stopped to chat. We hope that the rest of the cleanups are this successful, and that we have lots of volunteers that come out to join us!
